      Make SURE to visit the bunker frequently at all times! To find 21O, go to the command room where the commander is; instead of going down the elevator, turn left and head downstairs next to the elevator to find her. If there isn't any quest from her yet, check back once in a while, but to know if there's a quest from her, it would show a red dot in the mini map in the bunker. I was able to do this quest BEFORE heading to the amusement park. The unlock for this quest seems to happen after finishing the desert for the first time.

        I was able to pick this up after visiting Pascal's village and returning to the Resistance camp, but not before visiting the Amusement Park. The unlock trigger is presumably in there somewhere.
